Make a villa in Sophia-Antipolis your home away from home

Holiday rentals in Sophia-Antipolis are part of a collection offered by HomeAway in the Alpes-Maritimes Valleys in the south of France. Sophia-Antipolis apartments are located in a modern residential suburb of Cannes and Antibes, so the neighbourhood is quieter and more sedate than those closer to the coast. The community nature of this area is demonstrated by a central shopping area, with restaurants for Sophia-Antipolis accommodation visitors who prefer eating out, supermarkets for the self-catering fans, and a small play area for children. This region also has the double benefit of being both near the coast and the Alps, so there are a whole slew of activities to enjoy.

Sophia-Antipolis self caterings are sandwiched between two golf courses, so this settlement is great for golf nuts, and the country club has a large number of tennis courts. Accommodation in Sophia-Antipolis is also surrounded by a large forested national park which is great for hiking and biking, and inside, rentals come with all the comforts of home: satellite TV; dishwashers; washer/dryers; large kitchens. There are a host of additional amenities available to provide visitors with the best holiday experience, with everything from swimming pools to barbecue equipment on offer.

Things to do

Beaches: Sophia-Antipolis is about four miles from holiday homes in Antibes and five miles from Cannes, where HomeAway also offers luxury holiday homes if a busier location nearer the sea is preferred. These are easily accessible by bus, and the Antibes train station accesses the main Riviera train line, which stops right at most of the main beaches up and down the Cote d'Azur.

Food and drink: There are restaurants and cafés to be found in the central shopping area, and a few more in the surrounding villages. The urban sprawl closer to the coast raises the number of dining options significantly. The food tends to focus on the local hearty Provencal produce, famous for its blend of French and Mediterranean cuisines.

Outdoor pursuits: Sophia-Antipolis is sandwiched between two golf courses, so golfing enthusiasts are well taken care of; the local country club also has its own driving range and tennis courts. Hikers and bikers are surrounded by the forested hills of a national park, and the Alps and coast are nearby for mountain and watersport activities.

Shopping: The central open-air shopping mall has a range of shops and supermarkets, as well as an internet café, a children's play area, a church, a bakery and a post office. For souvenir shopping, the village of Grasse is only 12 miles away, with a famous range of artisanal, local crafts to choose from.

Weather in Sophia-Antipolis

Sophia-Antipolis' position slightly inland of the Cote d'Azur means the summer temperatures are usually a degree or two cooler than the coast during the long, hot summers. High temperatures typically top out around 28°C, though temperate winters, especially this close to the Alps, means this region serves equally well as a winter destination. Rainfall is sparse and falls mainly in the autumn.

Travel to Sophia-Antipolis

Sophia-Antipolis is only 12 miles from the largest airport serving the Cote d'Azur at Nice. It's also the second busiest airport in France, so just about every major international airline is represented, and direct flights from the UK are common. The town is also well served by buses, and the nearby Antibes train station connects to Nice and the rest of the Riviera. The south of France is also quite driveable from the UK, and trains can get visitors here in around nine hours from London.

Fabulous days in Nice

5 of 5
We had an amazing time in Nice, staying at the Dalpozza apartment, which was everything it said it was and more. Very spacious and clean and having two bathrooms was a plus. The beds were amazingly comfortable - we slept liked logs. Perfect location and so convenient for everything - a little supermarket across the road, which had everything you needed and lovely reasonably priced restuarants on the street. It was only two minutes to the promenade and the tourist information office, where you could pick up bus timetables, maps etc.and general information. We only had four full days in Nice, but visited lots of places. We spent one day wandering around the old town and harbour and along the beautiful promenade and other days spent visiting Monaco, Antibes and the village of Eze - all a must to do and very easy to get around on the buses, which were very cheap. We must return to see more of this spectacular area.

Very stylish with great facilities.

5 of 5
Stayed for a month over winter. Beautifully stylish with the owners having a real flair for design. Great for an escape from the worst of the British weather. Enjoyed all the facilities of the villa - efficient heating, wifi, tv and dvd- on inclement days and was lovely to get out and about in the area when it was sunny. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Cosy and comfortable

5 of 5
Six very comfortable nights just before Christmas in Alan and Ciaran’s beautifully fitted out apartment. Could not be more centrally located, in a pedestrianised area, close to old town shops, outdoor food market and right next door to very pleasant restaurants. Comfortable bed, good bed linens and towels and pillows OK. A tip: if you need to find a hot dryer to dry your washing quickly, there is a self-service launderette 5 minutes walk away just up the Rue de la Boucherie, towards Place Centrale.
